the audio file for this youth pastor’s verbal slip came to me as an attached file five or six times a week ago; and it totally cracked me up. but geron (in a comment on another post) points us to actual video of the incident. the guy’s eyes, when he makes the slip, are absolutely classic.

And who says speaking doesn’t involve hazards? Wow… you know, if you make a mistake like that don’t try to go on cause you’re done. Just laugh with everone and make fun of yourself cause its over baby.

The pharse “pitching tents” without the slip up is funny in itself. My friends I and used this term for a different purpose in middle school.

I know the guy who did that, although I’ve only interacted with him a few times. He really is that expressive all the time. He’s also seems to me to be one of the most good-natured and pure-hearted guys I’ve ever met, which just makes it that much funnier to me.

Classic! I heard a pastor slip up one time and say(speaking of Abraham and Sarah’s conception) “It’s a miracle when a ninety-year-old man and another man come together in intimacy and have a child.” Someone in the front row yelled, “Not in this church.”

I have been showing that piece all over my office and we are dying laughing watching that thing.

Okay, I can’t take it anymore … it won’t work for me! What’s up? Anyone know why?

I commented on a similar post at pomomusings. And since I think I am so self-depricatingly clever, I’ll share it here too:

A couple years ago I was speaking on the topic of death. It was shortly after the space shuttle Columbia disaster. In my moment of preaching passion, I stated that the shuttle exploded “upon rear-entry.”

“stated that the shuttle exploded “upon rear-entry.””
oh my…
